In for restoration Royal Doulton folly with arm off

Steps of Restoration

Firstly the joint was cleaned of any old glue etc…

The arm was reattached into place, some small bits were missing and so the joint was filled

After rubbing down the joint a primer coat was applied

Once we were happy the joint was good

The figure was hand painted back to its original condition

Finally a coat of super hard glaze was applied

*  introduced 1936 – withdrawn 1949
